The staff are extremely friendly, and the location is convenient to drive to, but the fare is the standard Chinese food like that served in most places in the US. The menu says their hot and sour soup is famous, but it's neither hot nor sour enough. The entrees are fine, and very affordable.

This is a true family run Resteraunt . They take great pride in service and food. I have been visiting this place for 25 years. What more can I say. The Empress garlic spicy chicken wings are to die for. Their Singapore Rice Thread Curried noodles with large tender shrimp , steak and scallions are just amazing. The egg rolls... More

Had Dinner delivered last night after a busy day. We shared Chicken with Broccoli, Chicken Chow Mien,Fried Pot Stickers and Glazed Apples. Almost forgot egg rolls. We still have left overs because they give you so much food and it is still nice and hot when you receive it. If you haven't tried their glazed apples you must as they... More

I have been eating here since they opened. My all time favorite dish is the Princess Prawns, fried prawns in a HOT garlic brown sauce. Killer!! I don't know if you can find a more flavorful dish which will totally satisfy your taste buds. The Hot and Sour soup is among the very best I've even eaten in my 40+... More

This restaurant is nice clean place to eat with very good Chinese and Korean food. Somewhat like the Colonade in that they seem to have a loyal clientele that appears to have been coming here to eat for many, many years. The steamed dumplings were excellent and the Mongolian beef was also quite good. The service was top notch and... More

If you are looking for good Chinese food, stop here! The portions are large and the price is small, but the food is delicious!

I have eaten at Golden Buddha since the early 80's. In fact when I return to Decatur to visit folks I know we will make at least one trip to the Golden Buddha. For me it is the Hot and Sour Soup. NOBODY makes it better. I have tried Hot and Sour in MANY places around the U.S.A....nobody makes it... More

Had lunch here with my daughter. She had wonton soup, and we shared an order of egg rolls, pot stickers, and chicken lo mein. The portions were good and the complimentary hot tea was nice. The egg rolls and a few of the pot stickers were overcooked on the outside. All in all decent chinese, but probably won't be back.... More

Golden Buddha has been serving up your standard Chinese food for years. And the place is usually packed, which tells you that lots of folks want familiar food. Lunch is a great value - egg rolls, soup and an entree for less than $8. You won't be taking any culinary risks here, but if you're in the mood for a... More

have dined here for at least the last twenty years. In recent years, the place has gotten very hit or miss. It seems to be coasting on its reputation and the fact that there are so many bad Chinese eateries in the area. To its credit, the service is consistently good. A friend and I had dinner there last night.... More
